GUEST: Arun Gupta, an investigative journalist who has written for dozens of publications including the Washington Post, the Guardian, The Nation, Salon, and Raw Story. He is also author of the forthcoming book, "Bacon as a Weapon of Mass Destruction," and a regular news correspondent for Rising Up With Sonali. BACKGROUND: President Donald Trump finds himself at the center of an increasingly crisis-driven White House. His personal lawyer is being investigated, his staff turnover is unprecedented, his party's House Speaker is retiring. His tweets are evermore belligerent, his lies keep piling up, his policy contradictions are beyond embarrassing. Meanwhile Americans, who were told that Trump was going to look out for the little guy, continue to struggle. Such a crisis situation offers room to organize and mobilize from the left. But how is the left organizing?
